Any day I’m taking pictures is a good day for me. My practice is dedicated to a professional and conscientious approach to all projects large or small. I approach every wedding from a fresh perspective tailored to the client’s personality and mood, no two weddings are identical. Images are delivered on a DVD with copyrights in addition to being available on the web for viewing and ordering. My hourly rates offer maximum flexibility and affordability. Wedding albums, coffee table books, framing and other services are also available ala carte.
What was your favorite wedding photo?
There's a number of photos that my wife and I love! Paul has a fantastic artistic eye. He has a great sense for all the elements that go into making a great photo.
How did the wedding photographer avoid disrupting the day? Great with candids? Action shots? Portraits?
Paul came very well prepared. He was unfamiliar with our venue, so he scoped it out in advance and was prepared to capture great shots the day of the wedding. During the ceremony we didn't even notice he was there, and we were surprised and pleased by the vantage points of his photos. He clearly put a lot of thought into it all. Right after the ceremony, he quickly set up his lighting gear for some terrific portrait shots, which he was great at orchestrating. Candid shots, action shots...he did a great job across the board.
What was included in your wedding photo package? Albums? DVDs? Engagement pics? Two photographers?
Paul posted pictures to a secure website where we could view all our photos online and pick our favorites, custom order prints, etc. Within that site, he also created a folder where he offered a number of digitally enhanced photos (e.g. black and white with color accents, etc., and he was able to touch-up or enhance photos). He then sent us a DVD and thumb drive of our photos so we could print our own as we pleased. We're planning on working with him to develop one of his signature coffee table books, which will have our favorite photos included in it.
How did the photographer make you and family comfortable?
The great thing about Paul was his approach to making sure we got the photos WE wanted, in the style we wanted, first and foremost. Our preference was for less emphasis on portrait photos and more action/candid shots, so we gave him a list of our "must have" photos, and he was happy to make sure to get those in the midst of the wedding madness. He also had no problem with other people taking photos, which we've heard can be a problem with some photographers. He was certainly warm, friendly, good-humored and respectful of all the other elements of our wedding. For people like us, who are not used to having someone photograph them repeatedly for extended periods of time, he managed to capture so many great photos without us ever really noticing his presence, which led to some fantastic action/candid shots, and allowed us to focus on celebrating our most important day!
